Honda Brio

Posted: 06 Dec 2010 04:12 PM PST

Few changes that we proposed Theophiluschi (in my view, rightly, to boot) for the production model, ie the final of the Honda Brio presented at the Motor Show Thailand late last month. Besides the obvious color change the front grill, keeping the defense almost unchanged. In the rear, clear type tuning lights have been modified by some lights more “normal”, with a broad red zone. A very accurate recreation and might get very close to reality. Remember that this beautiful little Honda model is intended for emerging markets to compete with the Suzuki Alto, the Kia Picanto, Hyundai i10 and Toyota Aygo, among others. Hopefully Honda also has the bright idea to distribute in Europe
